A Day in the Life

M-F for me is crazy crazy crazy, I leave for work early, get home late and usually have a million things to do in between...Here is my typically day (I'm using this past Monday as an example)

 6:30 AM : My alarm goes off- I dress quickly, feed the cats, grab bfast and check my email

6:55:-7 am: I walk out the door and to the subway. At the station I read theSkimm- sign up for it, now- and catch up on the news and then take either the 2 or 3 train to work, whichever comes first.

7:20am : Stop for coffee- this step is very important!

7:30 am: Walk into work- If Big J isn't awake yet, I wake him and prepare his breakfast. I also make lunches, get Little J up and dressed, Big J dressed, brush teeth, pack bags and snacks.

8:30 am: We all walk out the door and to the Bus Stop
typically bus ride

9 am: I drop the kids at school and head back uptown to do some grocery shopping

9:30-12 pm: Grab groceries, make dinner, tidy up the apartment, make beds, do any online shopping/refills, make any needed appointments, put pictures into a new album, wash kids winter coats and hats.

12-2:15 pm: I take a break! Grab lunch, blog my heart out, pop in the yoga dvd

2:15 pm: Pack up swim stuff and head to the subway to pick up the kids

2:45-4:15 pm: Grab kids from day care, ride bus to swimming. Change everyone super fast- Big J does private lesson with teacher, Little J and myself do the Baby and Me class. Finish swimming, change clothes and run back to work.

4:15-6 pm: Play with kids, finish anything that is needed for dinner.Big J does a yoga dvd, while Little J has speech.
my favorite yoga dvd for kids- buy it here!

6-8 pm: Eat dinner, playtime, and baths- everyone gets changed into PJs.

8-8:30 pm: Clean up from dinner and misc. around apartment, pick up toys, run dishwashers, prep for breakfast and lunch tomorrow.

8:30 pm: Go HOME!

9-9:45 pm: Get home, relax, feed the cats, have a glass of wine, read a book for a few minutes and then pass out.

what I find when I come home when I leave my house in a hurry
Everyday varies- there are always different activities in the afternoon and Wednesday are super crazy because we have some classes in the morning, but you get the gist. It is long and busy but for the most part I love it!

What does your day look like?

  1. Sounds like a long day indeed but I'm sure there's never a dull moment with that job so that's always a good thing!

  2. WHOAH! I love hearing about a typical day for people. This is cray! Your organized time makes you so efficient! Plus you drink coffee! LOL I gave it up while pregnant and I am really looking forward to having it again! I also want that nightly glass of wine you mentioned! Are those your kiddos? Are you a nanny? I need the details! :)

  3. what a crazy day you have, props to you getting through that schedule! and btw, i love the Skimm!

  4. I barely made it to 9:30 and I was exhausted! I don't know how you do it! :)
